Windsor West federal election candidates Henry Lau, PC, David Sundin, LIB, and Brian Masse, NDP, faced each other Wednesday afternoon at the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce’s all candidates debate.

Candidates were asked what they would do for small business. Masse said eco-tourism could be a boost for the region and the NDP will lower small business taxes. Sundin said the Liberals would also lower small business taxes. Lau said having started his own small business, he’s sympathetic to the needs of business owners and that job opportunities are needed.

All three candidates agreed on a question regarding funding for the CBC. Each said they would support funding increases but each would approach it differently.

Candidates were asked what they would do with the Senate. Lau said its not fair to tradition to remove the senate. Masse said the NDP would abolish the senate and save $100m a year. Sundin said the senate definitely needs reform and the status quo can not continue.

The 30-minute debate concluded and Candidates from Windsor-Tecumseh were up next.
